Just Williams – Dexys’ Pete’s Solo at the Glee Club
When Pete Williams kindly agreed to an interview (click here to read it folks!) with welovebearwood (what a lovely chap!) he told us all about his new solo album (See) and the very special album launch show at the Glee Club.
Pete’s got some fantastic musicians playing with him (including members of both Imelda May's and Richard Hawley’s bands) and, in his own words, “this is going to be a powerful, intimate show”.
As a key member of both the original line up and the newly reanimated Dexys (set to release their first new album for 27 years, One Day I’m Going To Soar, on June 4th), as well as the criminally underrated The Bureau, Pete’s been making music for over 3decades but, incredibly, See is his first solo release. From what we’ve heard of it so far it’s an incredibly honest, personal and moving piece of work with some killer melodies and vocals to die for. Yep, we’ve got a bit of a Pete crush going on!
This very special album launch is next Tuesday 21st February at the Glee Club in Birmingham, if tickets aren’t yet sold out they will do so don’t chance it!
